Early Decision

Class of 2023

 
As an Early Decision applicant, you have a binding commitment to the college if you are admitted. Therefore, it is extremely important to submit all required documents by the deadline in order to be considered for need-based institutional financial aid.
 
Documents can be uploaded to Barnard's online application portal upon completion of the Common Application. The Financial Aid Checklist in the applicant's online portal will be updated if additional documents are required to complete the application. All applicants should review their Financial Aid Checklist on a regular basis to ensure all required documents have been received.
 
Barnard does not participate in College Board's Institutional Document Service (IDOC). 
 
Applicants who are admitted under Early Decision will receive a financial aid decision letter in mid-December if all necessary documents are received by the official deadlines.
